4 trivia entries for show generally

Trivia: The team roster depicted in this series is largely made up of members of the Blue Team (Cyclops, Wolverine, Beast, Gambit, Rogue and Jubilee) that was established in the first issue of X-Men Vol. 2, with Storm and Jean Grey representing the Gold Team. Most of the characters' designs are also based on artist Jim Lee's redesigns.

Trivia: The show contained numerous references to the Terminator film series. Several episodes such as "Time Fugitives" and "One Man's Worth" (also "Days of Future Past," but that was based on a pre-Terminator comic) featured one or more characters traveling into the past to prevent an event that causes a dystopian future. The robots from Cable's future bear a resemblance to the T-800s. When Mr. Sinister's body is blown to bits in "Reunion, Part 2" it begins to reassemble itself exactly like the T-1000 when it was frozen and then blown to bits. Wolverine even refers to Bishop as Mr. Terminator in the episode "Days of Future Past, Part 1." Another Schwarzenegger movie, "Total Recall", is referenced in "Time Fugitives, Part 2" when Cable uses a hologram of himself in order to bait someone into shooting at him.

Trivia: Despite the character's current massive popularity, Deadpool only made three unofficial cameos on this show, as the character was not nearly as popular in the early 90s. Once as a mental projection during a psychic session between Professor X and Sabretooth in the season 1 episode "Deadly Reunions"; as an illusion created by the dark side of Professor X's consciousness in the season 3 episode "The Phoenix Saga Part 2: The Dark Shroud"; and as form that Morph took during a confrontation with Wolverine in the season 2 episode "Whatever It Takes." Deadpool was set to make his first official appearance in a television series in the second season of "Wolverine and the X-Men", but that show was canceled before this ever came to fruition.
